I don’t understand people who don’t love garlic. I have to assume they’ve only been exposed to inferior, dried up versions from dusty old store shelves. For me, the tingly bite of fresh garlic or the complex smoothness of roasted garlic are taste sensations beyond compare.
I suppose some are turned off by the odor, much like with onions, that lingers after using garlic. That’s one nice thing about a press, it keeps the garlic smell from transferring to your hands while you’re cooking.
I’ve actually never owned my own garlic press though, so I was so excited to try the Propresser Stainless Steel Garlic Press from Orblue . I have to admit I feel a bit spoiled after using it. This is no cheap dollar store implement. This is a hefty tool worthy of any fine kitchen, and meant to last through years of family dinner nights and weekend parties.
If a kitchen tool can be called beautiful, this one certainly is. It’s made of stainless steel and from the weighty feel of it in your hand to the gleaming surface, it’s almost like an object of art.
I found the large basket to be the perfect size for a garlic-lover. The press couldn’t have been easier to use, the garlic went right through perfectly the first time, without any struggle or force needed.
Something else I love is that they stand behind their product with a 200% guarantee- if you’re ever dissatisfied, they not only refund your money but also send you a new product. That tells me they’re truly concerned with the reputation of their company and the happiness of their customers.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
